putin vladamir putin land. judy gold live this morning? >> jacki sheckner. did i say karl rove? i did. i am drunk. jacki sheckner, everything old is new again. i heard tea party people are urging republicans to cuts off the funding for obamacare approximate. yay! >> let's see how that goes over again. >> yay, it's back again,
6:01am
government shutdowns and shouty town hauls about health care. >> i got told on twitter yesterday, screaming, all the old talking points. >> something called with a talking point this week. the president has no transparency, nobody was able to see. >> it was all passed under the cloak of night and secret. >> right, oh, that was musty, it had math balls on it. here she is, nurse jacki, today, president obama will meet in with prime minister and the the i.m.s. has has given the struggling european nation billions of dollars in bailout money said greece is on the right track, but needs to raise
6:02am
taxes. >> the white house has announced to president obama's going to make a speech on the steps of the lincoln memorial this month further 50th anniversary of martin luther's i have a dream speech, called the let freedom ring event. it commemorates the march on washington, which drew some 250,000 people. >> we heard from mark zukerburg about why he is backing immigration reform. he is launching an ad campaign to try to influence wavering members of congress. >> i do want to give back. i believe 100% in what this country stands for. let me earn it. let me serve. i just want an opportunity. i want a chance. >> that's alejandro morales. he cannot serve our country, his country because of his
6:03am
immigration status. he would like to be a marine. we're back right after the break. stay with us. this show is about analyzing, criticizing, and holding policy to the fire. are you encouraged by what you heard the president say the other night? is this personal, or is it political? a lot of my work happens by doing the things that i'm given to doing anyway, by staying in touch with everything that is going on politically and putting my own nuance on it. in reality it's not like they actually care. this is purely about political grandstanding. i've worn lots of hats, but i've always kept this going. i've been doing politics now for a dozen years. (vo) he's been called the epic politics man. he's michael shure and his arena is the war room. >> these republicans in congress that think the world ends at the atlantic ocean border and pacific ocean border. the bloggers and the people that are sort of compiling the best of the day. i do a lot of looking at those people as well. not only does senator rubio just care about rich people, but somehow he thinks raising the
6:04am
minimum wage is a bad idea for the middle class. but we do care about them right?
6:05am
6:06am
♪ >> all right, everybody, look alive. we have a full on fhilmer alert. get your facemasks, hockey masks on, so you can avoid the full facial lick. it's gotten ickier.
6:07am
>> yeah, the people he targeted in this one. >> 1-800-steph-1-2, from anywhere. we have judy gold in studio. hi, jim, good morning, are you alive? oh, ok. he was doing a thinker pose. >> he has a stomach thing, he told me. >> oh, dear. >> i think he's trying to hold something in. [ laughter ] >> good luck with that. we don't want any previews. [ laughter ] >> thoughts get to. we're going to do a health care corner with jacki. she doesn't know yet. >> i sent her an email, she might know. >> about george bush's heart stent and his brush with the health care system. right out of the box, here we go. >> karl. >> karl frisch. ♪ ♪
6:08am
>> good morning, karl frisch. >> i don't think, how are you? >> good, this is not karl rove, sure. >> that was a grave error on my part, although you used to be a republican. >> i did, but i was just confused and lost. >> you were doing your job, doing what you were told told. >> a loft boy and now you are found. >> that's right. >> now i loved your tweet. you said if snowden's going to be in russia, at least sarah palin can keep an eye on him. very, very funny, karl. >> is he there. >> i can see him from my house. >> i think he's on a russian sub or something. >> the big news, obama canceled his putin summit. he's disappointed in russia. >> it's snowed in and partly
6:09am
because of their anti lbgt legislation. i have a feeling it's probably mostly snowden. [ sirens ] >> is that your ride coming to pick you up? >> it's my ride coming to drop me off. >> you tweeted about that. i was on c.s.n. talking about that last night. i don't know what you think, but it's pretty serious what's happening in russia. the topic last night was a couple people have compared it to hitler and they're saying is that an unfair comparison. i pointed out hitler started with the gays and gypsies. >> godwin said in this in stance, it's appropriate to compare them to nazi germany. >> stalin, maybe a better comparison, just saying. >> in germany, before the what
6:10am
was it, the 36 games. >> the 36 games, we talked about a boycott and said but hitler would never go that far, right? >> well, at that time, hitler had passed laws say that go jews could not hold public office and he had banned literature written by jews and had done to few other things, as well. right now, what putin has done is basically said that gay folks are not allowed to say that they're gay, talk about gay. if you mention trykofski you can go to jail. that's the first step. when hitler had done that, his police were looking the other way when jews would be on the street or crimes were committed
6:11am
against jewish people. that's what's happening in russia now. you've probably seen the stories about these young kids, basically, meeting, you know, going on line and meeting other what they think are gay kids and going to meet up with them in person, and then it's these neonazi russian skin heads and they get tortured and beat up and the cops look the other way, and, you know, some of these kids have died, but that's what's happening in russia right now. >> i think it actually started, leno made the comparison when the president was on the other night, saying the anti gay laws are like germany, rounding up jews. you have people saying that's an over reaction, but i'm reading an op ed saying these are similar to the anti nuremberg laws passed by hitler.
6:12am
84% of russians believe society should reject gay people, perhaps something saying it because they fear arrest. the world wonders however this will go. >> you don't have to be gay to get in trouble there. you to have speak out for your gay friends and family and you'll be thrown in jail or beaten up. even being an ally to the community is bad there, so folks need to put pressure on the olympic committee there and ask the game to get moved. i've heard the folks in vancouver would love to have the winter games again. they had it in 2010, so they've already got all the equipment and different kind of places that you would need to have all the different events. >> it's interesting. this op ed ends with no one can predict the future, but obama
6:13am
offering silence because evil will never be satisfied, it's our turn to speak up. there are 447 of congress who have yet to sign that letter to secretary kerry. we need to be asking why. i think the president did take a stand canceling the summit with putin. people are saying is that an empty gesture, because he's still going to the summit. i thought look, a is you and i have said, this president has done more for gay rights than all the other presidents combined. we've made such progress with gay rights, it's weird that this is going on that in russia. >> at this point, and russia's basically trying to deny all of western europe's progress on lbg testimony rights. the right wing in this country, it's very strange to see where they fit most in. you've got middle eastern
6:14am
countries that feel a certain way about gay people and you've got russia that feels a certain way toward gay people, and it all comes down to this religious intolerance, and at a certain point we have to ask ourselves where does that come from. you can look at our right wing evangelicals here that defend that the russians have a right to treat gay people like this, and that's just sick. >> yeah. >> and they're also suggesting that gay people are intolerant of our views, trying to turn it around on gay people like that, which is mind boggling to me. >> when right wing christians have to feel this kind of tyranny and abuse, the gay people will be there standing up for their rights. as it stands now, we already know that right wing evangelical americans were the ones that were behind putting all of those
6:15am
crazy thoughts about gay people in the minds of the ugandan legislature. >> there's another example, yeah. >> we've gotten to the point where we've made so much progress in this country, you can't say certain things against gay people even if you feel it, because your neighbors will think you're crazy, so our right wing evangelical crazies have been exporting their hatred to susseptemberrable places. >> i just had my photo shoot last night. i'm in out 100. we did the photo shoot at my house. i was in a lace dress on my bed with my two giant dogs. i'm sure there will be charges of bestiality. >> of course there well. >> my understanding is that the show is moving to the pet channel, so. [ laughter ] >> that's a possibility. >> oh, god.
6:16am
we're animal-free morning show. >> i realize i wasn't supposed to say anything. >> you let the cat and the dog out of the bad. you scamp. >> you see what you did there. >> that's just the top of it. we're going to have lots more pet puns all day. >> there you go. >> it's morning a max and fred. >> with dexter von frisch and the side car. thank you, a deep kiss to dexter for me. >> thank you. >> lots to get to, including by the way, rick santorum had some thoughts on liberals and gays and bears, owe my. 17 minutes after the hour. >> maybe he should run for president. >> or uganda.
6:17am
young turks! i think the number 1 thing than viewers like about the young turks is that were honest. they know that i'm not bsing them for some hidden agenda, actually supporting one party or the other. when the democrats are wrong, they know i'm going to be the first one to call them out. cenk on air>> what's unacceptable is how washington continues to screw the middle class over. cenk off air i don't want the middle class taking the brunt of the spending cuts and all the different programs that wind up hurting the middle class. cenk on air you got to go to the local level, the state level and we have to fight hard to make sure they can't buy our politics anymore. cenk off air and they can question if i'm right about that. but i think the audience gets that, i actually mean it. cenk on air 3 trillion dollars in spending cuts! narrator uniquely progressive and always topical, the worlds largest online news show is on current tv. cenk off air and i think the audience gets, "this guys to best of his abilities is trying to look out for us."

♪ stephanie: it is the "stephanie miller show," welcome to it. 1-800-steph-1-2 the number. tony, you're on the "stephanie miller show" show. caller: one way to drive putin crazy, have our whole team in the olympics, maybe get canada,
6:22am
possibly even england in on it and have them all wear rainbow arm bands. stephanie: oh, well, there you go. i like that poke in the eye for putin. good idea. caller: what's he going to do, put them all in jail? stephanie: or wear pink triangles on their outfit. >> oh, no. stephanie: it is hitleresque, i'm just saying. caller: mama, this is such a tragic thing on so many levels. focusing in on our own country with the religious right, it is breath taking how easily they have admitted everything that jesus says. they name them he isselves christian and do the exact opposite. what jesus said was the biggest commandment of all, the one we all had to follow was whatever you've done to the least of these, you've done to me.
6:23am
essentially that's the hard part of being a christian. you to have look at people you would just dismiss and say there is the person of christ in front of me, now what am i going to do with him. when christianty practiced, it has never been easy. it is not about power, which is what these folks are doing, and you get angry, but if you're someone who values your faith, someone who -- i'm sorry. stephanie: that's ok. that's ok. caller: if you value your faith, it's about caring and loving people. it's not about hating people. it just gets so frustrating when you see folks doing this on the right, because it's not about christ, it's about getting their power and taking in control, and assuming that people will be tries into being part of your club.
6:24am
stephanie: right. caller: i'm sorry. stephanie: right, i think, again, not to over use the whole nazi comparison, but i think that what people are talking about are not just the anti gay laws in russia, it's the climate of fear it's creating in everybody else, you get a number like 84% think gays should be rejectioned, do they really think that or are they afraid? >> they're afraid. stephanie: anyway, that's the analogy. caller: it's spot on. i think that's why we're having a hard time globally going not again, didn't we get this the last time around? humans are never -- never underestimate the ability of humans to be stupid. we are so good at denial. these leaders need to realize fear is a very fragile emotion and once people are up against the law and have nothing to lose, you put yourself in a very
6:25am
dangerous approximation when it comes to a revolution or backlash, whatever. i do think that when we look at russia and what's going on there now and that environment, the right here in this country needs to take, and fox news and that ilk need to take a good, hard look at themselves, because they're a part of this. they have helped create this environment. we are a global community and look what they've accomplished. stephanie: there you go, dave, thank you, honey. the president talking about this. >> i have no patience for countries who try to treat gay and transgender people and try to intimidate them. what's happening in russia is not unique. it's important for me to speak out and make sure that people
6:26am
are treated fairly and justly because that's what we stand for and i believe that's a precept that's not unique to america, but something that should apply everywhere. stephanie: he talked about russia in general. obama: there were times when they slip back into cold war thinking and a cold war mentality, and what i consistently say to them and what i say to president putin is that's the past. stephanie: you know who this is good news for? >> who? stephanie: the guy with the freaky eyes in all the old goldie hawn movies. dueful lundgren, it's good for him. >> although he is swedish, not russian. >> his acting comes back. stephanie: what a country. >> exactly. >> his real name is probably tim smith. >> i think for the first time
6:27am
since the 1930's, a nazi germany analogy is apt. >> that's what i'm saying. i'm just saying. the white house canceled the face-to-face with putin. obviously this stuff, the lbgt rights and the final straw, of course, the asylum granted to snowden, the state department said we've informed the russian government we believe it will be more constructive to postpone. russian's decision to provide asylum to snowden is a consideration. the kremlin responded quickly, voicing its own disappointment.
6:28am
they are equally disappointed, blaming it on washington's inbat to create relationships with moscow on an equal base. >> join us, won't you with that why don't you be more equal about our unequal stand on equal rights. >> a little history on our russian relations. obama sought to cultivate medved. i still have ptsd when i think about debating medved. thank god medved is not in office anymore.
6:29am
sending hillary clinton to meet, remember, we did the whole reset of the russian relations. the worst news was putin, he wants none of the coziness reset would bring, and stepped up negative rhetoric on missile defense. as jim said, he famously likes to lift up little boys' shirts and rub their tummies. >> kiss their bellies. >> a cultural thing? >> i don't know if that's common there. >> yes. stephanie: ok. speaking of creepy, we'll talk about filmer next.
6:30am
(man) i'm a sports cinematographer and i mainly shoot surfing or water sports and basically our job is to swim a camera out in water and let people see what most other people don't get to see. ♪ i see that traffic in the morning going down to town and everybody going to work behind a desk and i always have a little snicker because i know i'm going down to the beach down here. ♪ i swim with all different types of cameras but a lot of time i swim with this arriflex. you got your focus, your zoom,
6:31am
and your f-stops and then i can punch in different speed-- sit can go up to 150 frames a second or it can go down to like 6 frames a second. it's a really heavy camera that weighs about 30 pounds. it's kind of like having a couple of cinder blocks tied to your wrists and trying to swim it through the ocean because it doesn't float, so you're constantly kicking and if you stop kicking you just go down. so, i've panicked before and let go of the camera and kind of came up for a little breath of air and swam back and got it real quick. so the camera's like 70,000 bucks. ♪ some of my really favorite shots that i like i'm looking back through the tube and when the surfer passes by me looking through the water, sometimes those are my favorite shots. i even have a shot of this guy with a camera it's kind of like the paparazzi on the paparazzi. he's filming that guy and i'm filming him filming that guy. part of the biggest trick is not to fight it, but work with it,
6:32am
and then you get the good shots, and then every so often you gotta pay for it. ♪ a really good friend of mine died out here at pipeline not long ago and a couple of years before that one of my friends drowned, they revived him at the hospital. i broke my leg out here and my ribs out here, a lot of bone breaking goes on out here. the better you get the less injured you get. i think doing what you love is one of the most important things and fulfilling things in life that you can continue doing and not feel depressed about later if you went the wrong way. if you do something that you really enjoy you can give it 100 percent and if you're dedicated you can just go out and do it.
6:33am
6:34am
>> ready, because i'm about to drop some knowledge. cute girls aren't from buffalo. ♪ come out tonight, cull out tonight, cul come out tonight. >> old v. splits. >> what are that? >> old vienna. >> i thought it was a float. stephanie: no. >> a beer float, i don't know. stephanie: no. >> ovary split. stephanie: 34 minutes after the hour.
6:35am
1-800-steph-1-2, toll free from anywhere. wow, if filner can get ickier, he just got ickier. do we have the song sexual healing handy, because wow, wow, wow, this is really gross. did you hear the voice mail? the man flirting, clearly asking for a date. hi, it's your newly favorite congressman, bob filner. >> hmm, what? stephanie: you know, the one who fell in love with you at your last speech. i'm going to wait until you come back to have dinner with you. he met her at a healing and hiring fair. he was focusing on the healing part.
6:36am
♪ stephanie: this is the icky part. this is an organization, they're survivors of sexual assault in the military. >> wow. the last guy you want to have it to that party. stephanie: this is about the story of the guy who was in in charge of the sexual assault bureau sexually assaulting, because women are vulnerable when they're in this position. she joins 11 other women who made unwanted advances. isn't it time for him to exit, perhaps. >> can you imagine having a wanted advance from filner? stephanie: no, but give him a break, he is three days into his two week they are approximate by to change his behavior toward women. >> for the worse, probably. stephanie: there are among
6:37am
female veterans, those who have accused filner. almost all were victims of sexual assault in the military. the women say the former chairman of the house veteran affairs committee, that's probably why he got on the committee. >> affairs, huh? >> it's in the title of his committee. >> he's doing his job, having affairs. it's in the title. stephanie: they say he used his significant power and credentials to access military assault survivors who they say are less likely to complain. at the same event where fernandez spoke, tiny gave a speech about her violented rape. she bore a son from the sexual assault. filner who was running for mayor of san diego at the time was scheduled to speak in the green room. he asked tiny about her rape. >> ugh. stephanie: he got as close as he could to me, his jacket was touching my jacket. i was bent down, he was bent
6:38am
down with me rubbing, like he cared, like he was consoling me. >> ooh. stephanie: tiny said she felt uncomfortable, awkward as filner moved closer and closer, so close that she nearly fell off the couch to move away from him. they all explain the same reaction. what were they to do, he was a congressman, a mayor. >> he was in a position of power. >> he grabbed breasts, buttocks, the full gamut, everything that is in complete violation of what we stand for. he is a sexual predator and used this organization for his own personal agenda. the group was formed as a safe haven for sexual assault victims. his speeches, he had also called for zero tolerance of sexual abuse in the armed forces. >> but i'm not in the armed forces, so... stephanie: she said we're all victims of military sexual assault.
6:39am
it appeared to me he was targeting the organization and hitting on women of this organization, because they were easy prey. >> oh, my god. stephanie: really? really? how many of these are going to have to come forward. it's, that's gross. jim in chicago, you're on the "stephanie miller show." hi, jim. caller: stephanie, the hooligans. i'm a conservative member, supreme, yell, but i was watching the t.v. yesterday and i was a big proponent of all the president close the embassies and trying to prevent that. stephanie: i thank you for being an honest conservative. this was really incredible. they were look at benghazi, he didn't protect the embassies, now look, he's protecting the
6:40am
embassies, look what he's doing. >> i saw about how we were retreating. you've been complaining for the last eight months how we didn't do anything to help or avoid this and now we are, and now that's the bad thing, so it's heavily making me reconsider my vote for the next election. stephanie: good four. at least we would point out the hypocrisy. i think the administration was the one group that did not politicize benghazi, we've got to figure out what happened to prevent this from happening again. >> the knee jerk reaction is that obviously sometimes the big things like benghazi and getting to the bottom of them might move more slowly than we appreciate, like going on a witch hunt, why don't we have any answers, it's been six and a half seconds. >> we do have answers, though, that's the thing. caller: that's what i mean. stephanie: but you're right.
6:41am
i mean, you know, the audacity of rick santorum to criticize the president for closing the embassies. what? >> you're doing not enough, doing too much. that's not enough too much. stephanie: oh, give me a break. by the way, oh, this is a great piece in the l.a. times about how the terrorists won. he made a good point. now there's all this screaming, we decimated al-qaeda. nobody's ever -- what idiot thinks al-qaeda is gone. he makes the point al-qaeda has gone local, making it less dangerous for americans at home but more dangerous for those in africa by killing bin laden and taking out a lot of the nexus in afghanistan and wherever, you know, they obviously have not been able to do the spectacular
6:42am
attacks here, but he's basically saying it puts our embassies more at risk, because they're right there. >> bin laden and al-qaeda's first high profile event was the african embassy bombings back in the 1990's. stephanie: the right wing will take anything to make the president look bad, oh, well, see, it's not defeated. anyway, he says neither, really, al-qaeda has changed in a way that makes it less dangerous for americans at home, but more dangerous for those who live in the middle east and africa. once it was global, but has gone local. this week's threat against embassies was focused on capitols in yemen. he said even in libya where a group attacked the u.s. consulate in benghazi last year, the operation appeared to stem from a local struggle for power, not from those following bin laden.
6:43am
anything to make the president look bad, rather than go as americans how do we best address this threat. outside it's home territories, al-qaeda has failed to strike successfully since the 2005 bombing of the london underground, an eight year slump. the saudi born bomb maker, abraham hassan isiri. underwear bomber, that was his, nicely done. >> not busy best work. stephanie: nicely done, dufus. that same year, his brother outfitted got as far as the palace and blue himself up, but he was the only casualty. essentially, he works for us. you did it to yours, perfect. >> solves that problem. >> does every sawed minister
6:44am
have a palace? you see palace with your title. stephanie: they need a tea party over there to get that government smaller. really, taxpayer funded palaces? >> you get a palace and you get a palace. stephanie: you get a palace, exactly. al-qaeda may be returning to its roots. bin laden before 2001 was focused on attacking oat posts in africa. you never heard anything in other administrations and obviously the carnage was a lot worse. operations like the attack on the cole, the bombings of the african embassies,al zawahiri thought it was more effective to attack outside the u.s. al-qaeda and its many outgrowth ohs have become a different
6:45am
problem, now focused on the western presidents in their own back yard, not on forgets in the west. the good news to put it bluntly, that's why it was nice for george bush to send many americans over there where they were a much easier target. >> welcome america. stephanie: good news to put it bluntly is most americans have less to worry about, but for diplomats overseas, the new normal is a serious problem as much for their ability to do their work as safety. worrying if embassies close as a result of threat, work isn't possible. i mean, again, what do you do if you're the president, you know? isince benghazi happened, they'e screaming and now he's trying to pond to a threat and they're screaming about that. what a job. much more to come. 45 minutes after the hour. >> announcer: don't you wish

[ applause ] stephanie: however, anthony wiener has pissed off yet someone else now. >> well, yeah, an entire constituency. stephanie: he got into a fight with an opponent and called him grandpa. >> in front of a hot mic. >> two days ago, there was a woman yelling at him. she's screaming at him and he's screaming back. tensions boiled over between anthony wiener and the rival george mcdonald. as the two got into a heated conversation. wiener called his opponent grandpa on a forum on senior

7:13am
stephanie: right. jacki: but that particular device that was put in is not necessarily effective for whatever condition he allegedly has. stephanie: no study has concluded basically, they're saying that, you know, that this is indicated for a patient such as bush. >> right. it seems to me, it's kind of like the best device money can buy, but not necessarily proven to be the most effective or specifically necessary for whatever he has, the blockage that he has, so what it's talking about is the nature of our health care system, where we throw a lot of money at something but haven't necessarily done all the research necessary to find out whether it's the most effective strategy to combat an illness or disease. the affordable care act has moneys and provisions to do comparative effectiveness research. there was a lot of political controversy over it, because people equated that with cost analysis, what was cost effective. what it does is figuring out
7:14am
what the comparing outcomes and research to figure out what's best, because what's expensive is not necessarily what's most effective. >> right. they're saying, you know, again, was he talked about study after study, showing the americans spend the most but finishes 15th or worst in most health care indicators. this is a gray area that's part of the cost of it, because we have countless people who reside in this gray area. this brings the sequester up, because it is cutting funding to do that kind of study. >> medicare is at the forefront of a lot of our research. when we cut money to medicare and medicaid, what we end up doing is cutting a lot of the opportunities we have to do comparative effectiveness research. medicare happens to be incredibly innovative coming to ways of figuring out how to keep
7:15am
people healthy, and reduce excessive moneys thrown into our health care system. when we reduce government money overall, we reduce the opportunity to do the research that we need to figure out what's best for our health. stephanie: the story concludes with a really important point. the organized and thoughtful health care system that moved george w. bush from a doctor's off to a catheterization table were built by tax dollars. the anti tax ranters of his party will continual the american health system. jacki: it's sad that it's become such a political football, because it is about hour health and making sure people get access to affordable, good quality affordable health care in this country. the process we've created, we're a bright shiny object society. we look at something bright, new and shiny and assume it's better. that's not necessarily true. we need to appreciate that there's a lot of government

7:17am
i.r.s. is going to play, is figuring out how much money you make and whether or not you qualify for a government subsidy to help afford your health care premium if you participate in the state exchange. the other way it will contribute is we need everybody to contribute to the pool, because everybody is going to have to take advantage of health care in our society, so if you're not going to choose an affordable health care option, you're going to have to pay a little bit of a fine. it's not much money, but pay a fine and the i.r.s. will collect that money. it has nothing to do with your health care records or access to your personal information. there's no intrusion there whatsoever. it's a totally made up talking point. >> i knew you guys would spread some light. stephanie: except for the fact that fox is right, your paycheck is going to go directly into line dancing lessons for i.r.s. agents. bill in albany, you're on with jacki. caller: hey, how are you?

stephanie: good, go ahead. jacki: hi, bill. caller: jacki, i have a situation with an older person that enrolled in medicare advantage through aetna that they said this will be better for you. i would assume that's because they have to pay less, the service they used to work for pays less for medicare coverage. they're being told that they can't switch back to medicare and get a supplement. could that be possible? jacki: no, you absolutely have the right to switch back if you'd like to. what i would encourage them to do and i think this is important for people to know, there's an organization called the medicare rights center, medicarerights.org. they have a lot of information

7:25am
hard to explain, but i'm going to try to break it down is that members on the hill get what's called the federal employees health benefits program, and it works kind of the way your employer benefits do, is that you pick a plan, you pay a premium, and then your employer pays part of that premium for you. for federal employees, the government is their employer, right, so the government subsidizes those premiums. well, if we put some of these into the exchanges, because of the money me make, they may not still get that subsidy, so the question becomes how do we continue to provide the benefits of paying for i think it's like 72% of their premiums if we're having these employees go out to the exchange. the administration came out with a memo, a proposal that said what we can do is kind of keep things the way they are in terms
7:26am
of subsidies and leave some of the decides up to the members office as to who goes into the exchange and who stays object the federal employees program. it's very specific within the government to help staffers. it's not like we're giving an exemption or making exceptions. they're trying to figure out basically how to keep the insurance you have if you want it. remember that whole thing? they're trying to figure out how to make that fair for people who work for the government and get their insurance kind of the same way that we do with our employers and not have to pay an exceeding amount of premium. stephanie: it's almost as if they're trying to imply that they use that against the president politically. caller: how are you doing this morning? stephanie: yes, go ahead. caller: let me tell you how this affects arkansas. democrats and republicans, because of the new health care

law passed medicaid expansion in this state. why? because an extra $1,500 per insured person, it costs extra for the uninsured in this state. 2700 people in this state would die without the new health care law. the most important thing, all of us that have insurance would not have a hospital to go to. hospitals cannot absorb the loss of the uninsured anymore. stephanie: yep, yep, good points. norm has a question for you from new york. hi, norm. caller: hi. stephanie: yes, go ahead. caller: i would like to know if obamacare is so great. stephanie: oops, hang on. oh, crop. sorry, jacki, are you there? sorry, i screwed up the phone system, but norm wanted to answer the question you just

i have to do is dig around, to be perfectly honest with you, because i'd hate to speak out of turn, but we do a lot of government research when it comes to ways of how to be efficient with our health care and effectiveness. that's allowed for within the affordable care act, more money to go towards that research. i think it's through nih. i'd have to check that for you. stephanie: spectacular corner again, except for my phone screw ups. i'm getting used to the phones. it's only been 25 years. jacki: i'll research and post the answer on twitter. stephanie: thank you, nurse jacki. jacki: bye. stephanie: see you back in the news center. there she goes. 29 minutes after the hour. right back on the "stephanie miller show." ♪
